• Show Bio for Bob Drake
Bob Drake (b 1957) has been playing lots of instruments with - and recording - all sorts of bands since the early 1970's. He was an important part of Denver's underground music scene from 1978 -1989 and a founding member of both Thinking Plague and Hail. In the early 1990's, when he was living in Los Angeles, he wound up engineering sessions with just about everybody (from Ice Cube to Shirley MacLaine). It was there he met Dave Kerman and became part of 5UU's. At the same time he started writing and recording his own solo albums. Since 1994 he has lived at his home studio in Southern France, where he has played on and recorded and/or mixed hundreds of albums by artists from around the world. He is also known for his definitive remastering of classic albums by Art Bears, Henry Cow, Cassiber and others.-Recommended Records 3/23/2017

"Chris Cutler started messing about with banjo, guitar and trumpet at school, settling for drums and playing shadows and other instrumental covers in his first band in 1963. Subsequently he played in R'n'B and Soul Bands, winding up in 1967 playing in London's psychedelic clubs. At the start of the seventies, with Dave Stewart, he co-founded The Ottawa Music Co, a 22 piece Rock composer's orchestra, eventually joining British experimental group Henry Cow with whom he toured, recorded and worked in dance and theatre projects until it's demise in 1978. In 1977 Henry Cow, The Mike Westbrook Orchestra and Frankie Armstrong formed a big-band and toured around Europe. After Henry Cow, Cutler went on to co-found a series of mixed national groups Art Bears, News from Babel, Cassiber, The (ec) Nudes, P53 and The Science Group. He was a permanent member of American bands Pere Ubu, Hail and The Wooden Birds and now works sporadically with John Rose, Fred Frith, Zeena Parkins, Iancu Dumitrescu, Peter Blegvad and Stevan Tickmayer.
